Photoreceptor cell biology, retinal degeneration, retinal neuroprotection, retinal vascular disorders, photoreceptor degeneration, photoreceptor neuroprotection, choroidal neovascularization, and diabetic retinopathy.

Research Summary

My research is focused on photoreceptor degeneration and retinal vascular disorders. By using experimental models, I hope to have a better understanding of the mechanisms and processes of retinal degenerations, and retinal vascular disorders, including diabetic retinopathy and choroidal neovascularization. Those models are also used to screen potential treatments for pre-clinical evaluation.
